NEW MEXICO AUTHORITIES ARE ACCOUNTABLE for prosecuting steven wargo and riley white
for assaulting this teacher, David Scully, with a 12" hunting knife
endangering the safety and lives of the junior high school girls there.
The Glenn Greenwald video, Top Left, is an hour and a half (1:28:39). ALL of it is good, if you have the time.
Glenn speaks for 50 minutes, from 4:40 to 54:30.
I recommend you listen to it, and re-listen to it often, to have a clear, uncluttered grasp of the issues.
It is a very, very clear talk about Privacy, Surveillance, and Secrecy (as in SECRET GOVERNMENT).
4:40 to 11:45 Friendly Warmup. He says this transcends left and right.
11:45 to 14:49 "COLLECT IT ALL" is their motto! ELIMINATE PRIVACY!
14:49 to 17:14 He says it Subverts Democracy
16:40 to 23:20 EXPOSURE OF EXISTENCE OF THE DEEP STATE, an unelected government within the government.
23:20 to 24:17 buildup to the next 35 seconds.
24:17 to 24:52 ONLY 35 SECONDS! IT COULD BE YOUR MAIN TAKEAWAY. "We would be better off not knowing?!" LOL
24:52 to 26:37 buildup
26:37 to 29:24 TOP SECRET GOVERNMENT.
29:24 to 33:40 people only worry when THE OTHER SIDE is secretive.
33:40 to 36:30 But Founding Fathers say ALL those in power will inevitably abuse power, and so need transparency, checks, and balances.
36:30 to 40:56 Free versus Tyrannical societies. Free = Public Officials are Transparent (open), Private Citizens have privacy (not subject to surveillance).
Tyrannical Society is the opposite. Public officials are secretive, and citizens are watched.
40:56 to 42:37 hillary and politicians in denial, hypocritical.
42:37 to 43:53 Oh Yeah? Reality Check On That LOL!
43:53 to 49:29 PRIVACY. IF YOU LISTEN TO ONLY ONE SECTION, LET IT BE THIS DISCUSSION OF PRIVACY!
49:29 to 54:27 Talks about working with Snowden. Don't give up and think you're powerless.
Individuals can make a difference.

WILLIAM DUNKERLEY interesting article about AP News bias
"AP could learn a lot from the National Geographic Society.
While claims still abound that Crimea
remains subject to Ukrainian sovereignty,
the Society has drawn its maps to show
Crimea as an integral part of Russia.
The organization's director of editorial and research
for National Geographic Maps put it simply:
'We map the world as it is,
not as people would like it to be.' "
(00:57) Meanwhile, and most critically, an entire nation has just been shown
that it's possible to deliver higher education in an entirely different way.
You don't have to drive to campus, buy textbooks, pay for room and board
in order to get an education.
You can do the whole thing on line ...
(2:12) You might also begin to wonder what a college degree is worth these days ...
a degree from a mid-tier liberal arts school? Totally and utterly worthless ...
colleges know all this, of course. they know their value.
they've been bleeding the middle class dry for decades
and they're self-aware enough to realize it
and that is why Washington is swarming with higher ed lobbyists ...
(3:41) A lot of these places are likely to go under in coming years.
There is not enough federal bailout money in the treasury
to save every pointless university in a bad recession.
They'll be gone for good. Closed - Repurposed, we can hope,
into much-needed efficiency apartments with loads of appealing green space.
COUNTLESS DEANS OF DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION WILL BE OUT OF WORK!
They'll wail and moan and they'll write outraged editorials in the new york times
about the "end of knowledge" and "the coming dark age."
THESE PEOPLE NEVER DESERVED JOBS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
The higher education establishment is hurting this country
and has for a long time.
Reform is essential.
This is a good and needed thing.
In fact, it's one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dark moment.TopScroll Down To Peter Thiel on Education
Tucker Carlson IS COLLEGE STILL WORTH IT?
Peter Thiel THE EDUCATION BUBBLE
don't miss 4:47 to 5:34 (47 seconds)
There is some repetition with the video two frames over,
(the "Uncommon Knowledge" interview with Peter Robinson).
This one here is a 14-minute clip on education.
The other is 45 minutes
and I picked out a 5-minute excerpt on education
which I hope you view
and I printed its dialog below.
22:00 to 27:00 TOPIC IS EDUCATION (5 minutes)
22:14 ROBINSON "Education...in recent years
you have been SCATHING on the topic
of American education. And in fact
you founded the Thiel Fellowships
to entice bright kids to drop out of college
and start their own companies.
You've said that we're in an education bubble,
and a bubble means that there's unreality involved.
People are buying things that aren't real, somehow..."
(Dialog continued below, center)
THIEL "Well, we have a bubble in education, just like
we had a bubble in housing in the last decade
or in internet stocks in the nineties.
It's reflected in the fact that people are
spending more and more. The cost of colleges
have gone up by more that 400% after inflation since 1980.
We now have over a trillion dollars in student debt...
it is a somewhat parasitic system. It's like a
very, very expensive IQ test...
An IQ test would cost $25
and a harvard education costs $250,000...
It's an incredibly high tax that's being extracted...
what specifically are you learning?...
You could think economically -
is education an investment?
is it a 4-year party, is it a consumption decision?
is it an insurance policy people are buying?
or is it, as I claim, in many cases, just a tournament
where the value actually consists of the fact
that these colleges exclude people, primarily...
It's like a crazy nightclub. It's like Studio 54
something like that where you have a long line of people
getting in, and the more exclusive you make it
the more valuable it is.
It masquerades as something positive sum,
in reality it's very zero sum."
ROBINSON "I SAID scathing! That applies!
So, if it's a bubble, in what way will the bubble pop?"
THIEL "...What I think will happpen
is we will start to see more alternatives...
it should not be that you go to Yale or you go to jail...
The analogy that I have suggested is that in some ways
the universities face a crisis somewhat similar to
the Catholic Church in the early 16th Century,
500 years ago, where you basically have
a unitary system - you know, there's ONE WAY.
It's (college is) sort of a secular, atheistic version
of the Catholic Church. It's like an atheist church
where your Salvation consists of getting a college diploma.
If you don't get a diploma, you will go to hell.
And there's no salvation outside this university system.
It's costing more and more -
the indulgences are getting more corrupt..."
On Higher Education
As Insurance And Tournament
14:30 to 15:17 Peter Thiel
"Re-do the bankruptcy laws...
discharge the student debt and
it's the college that gave you the bad education
that gets stuck with the bill."
Peter Thiel. Are schools a jobs program
for former bank tellers
and daycare for parents who
don't want to raise their own kids?
"The Girardian Critique of Schmidt," "The Singularity," "Thermidor."
I, with a history degree from The University of California,
with a year of law school at a very reputable law school,
with teaching credentials in 2 very critical subjects and 1 other important subject,
and a Honorary Doctorate in Education from Diane Ravitch,
am sometimes pushed to, and beyond, my intellectual limit, watching Peter Thiel videos.
I didn't know what those words or references meant, without looking them up.
Look 'em up. I did (most of 'em).
I will propose here a light-hearted critique of Mr. Thiel.
He compares elite universities to "Studio 54."
(From 1977 to 1986 Studio 54, at 254 West 54th St, Manhattan,
was a world famous club with restrictive entry policies
and celebrity guest lists.)
Mr. Thiel very perceptively proposes several different purposes
that such universites fulfill, and one major function
is that they are exclusionary and elitist.
Only a limited number are allowed into the club,
and the red ropes are put up to keep out those who are on the street,
clamoring to get in.
IT IS THAT VERY EXCLUSIVITY THAT GIVES VALUE TO THE EXPERIENCE,
JUST LIKE IN THE ELITE UNIVERSITIES.
"I have a degree from IVY LEAGUE U. Few people can say THAT!"
Well, as I listened to Mr. Thiel's videos,
I wryly thought that Mr. Thel's abstruse discussions
serve the very same purpose as the red ropes
Only the elite, selected, special few can fully particpate
in a full understanding of Mr. Thiel's discussons.
Oh, sure, we can all say "Yes, I saw that video,"
but not that they really understood it all.
That's like waiting on the street and not getting in.
So, in a sense, Mr. Thiel's discussions, themselves,
are elitist and exclusionary.
Very few can say,
"I WATCHED THAT PETER THEIL VIDEO AND JUST COULDN'T STOP.
I WAS ABSOLUTELY ABSORBING EVERY WORD, EVERY THOUGHT, EVERY NUANCE!"
Many can apply (watch)
but few are admitted (can understand).
(By the way, abstruse means "difficult to understand, obscure."
And, obscure means "not clear to the understanding;
hard to perceive.)
Ah! Despicable me, a working class fellow who was taught to talk plain and simple.
For example, I wrote that julie gwynn, my cobol instructor,
and the spouse of the computer department chair,
in which department I was enrolled in a degree program,
toyed with me for months (dating, dancing)
and scolded me fiercely with her obnoxious finger to my nose, saying
"White Men have it coming to them!"
She also said, in a similarly offensive manner,
"calling a white female a 'womens libber' IS JUST AS BAD AS
calling a black man a 'nigger' ". (I AM JUST QUOTING EXACTLY WHAT SHE SAID.)
(I had not called anybody a women's libber,
nor had I used the nword, but she decided to scold me thus, nonetheless.)
Now, you don't have to look anything up to understand what I said
and to understand that she (and THEY, because it was a group thing) was very, very wrong.
Simply the power relationships between instructor and student,
spouse of department chair and student,
department chair and student,
should have raised red flags and sounded bells and whistles
and they should have been disciplined for their culpability
(culpability means responsibility for a fault or wrong.)
I remember driving passengers to Studio 54
when I drove a taxi in NYC for a while.
They all smelled like a french bordello
(not that I've ever been to a french bordello, you understand.
"Some actions will need to be taken

"Ditto," says David Scully.Patrick Byrne knew he had to disclose,
and so he also knew, or should have known,
that Maria had to disclose, too.
Being her lover, he should have insisted.
It would have saved her trouble and drama.

Former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne talks to CNN's Chris Cuomo about being approached by the FBI to have contact with Russian national Maria Butina
and the involvement of higher-ups in the bureau.
Byrne predicted more whistleblowers will come forward

Byrne continually referred to those involved with the conspiracy as "X, Y, and Z."
Byrne revealed that Mr. Z is former FBI Director James Comey in his interview with Cuomo.
In an interview with FNC's Martha MacCallum earlier on Thursday,
Byrne said the FBI was "hijacked" by those at the top
